The Red Thread Snappers – From Bent Creek This series is a set of 12 designs, seasonal/monthly in theme, that are all connected with a Red Thread. They can be stitched separately or all together in one long row. There is a freebie border chart that wraps around the 12 small designs if you choose to stitch them all together. The complete set tells the story of The Red Thread which is based on an ancient Chinese belief. ‘An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle, but it will never break.’ The County Fair has a banner with the name hanging over a prize winning cow and a pig with a balloon.
